Cidade Alta, Luanda

2.7
#3 of 10 in Historic Sites in Angola
Lovers of old Portuguese architecture will enjoy visiting Cidade Alta, considered one of the most beautiful quarters in the capital. Walk around the streets adorned with elegant buildings, and soak in the colonial architecture. Note, however, that taking photos in the area is forbidden, given the proximity of the presidential residence and the heavy military security. Visit the local church and museum to find out more about the capital's history. See Cidade Alta and all Luanda has to offer by arranging your trip with our Luanda online holiday maker .

  • The area was beautiful and modern, with a distinct architectural style than other areas in the city. I love Luanda because here comes the sincerity and love of the people.

  • The Assembly building without doubt that is very interesting, but such finery with so much misery around, leave us in reflection.
